Black Tie Blog Hop… Second Day = My Day!!

My Little Country HenLovin This Turkey!!Country RoosterI’ve been anticipating this blog hop since I first signed up for it.  At the time, I was at a sheer loss as to what black tie’s had to do with turkeys, chickens, hens, and roosters. Alas, I got to work looking for inspiration on what I could make. Suffice it to say, when I find the artwork, I simply couldn’t decide what I liked more, so I did 3 blocks. While all the blocks themselves are around 9-inches finished, they main design of the block is only about 6-inches square with the exception of the rooster which is a 6×9 block. Continue reading

It’s My Day For The Autumn Appliqued Animals EQ Blog Hop

2013-10 Fall Cow With Pumpkin2013-10 stbs-Fall CowIt’s been fun to create this pattern for those visiting this blog hop. I thought I picked a pretty simple pattern, but it turns out it was far more complicated than I thought it was going to be.

There are many parts to this pattern, the templates alone for the 12 inch block take up 3 pages in the pdf file.

Instead of creating a how to draw this pattern, I chose to do some helfpul hints for using EQ instead. These help me on a daily basis, and I hope you will enjoy the different videos I’ve created for this hop. I tried to keep them pretty small, but so far none are over 20 minutes long and most are less than 5 minutes.

Artwork for this block is from Diddybag.com
